I love this salad, but am the only one in my family who will eat it, so I tend to make it fairly infrequently. The combination of the sweet and salty is so good!
2 c. pretzels, crushed
4 Tbl. sugar
3/4 c. butter, melted
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1 c. sugar
1 (12 oz.) container of Cool Whip
1 (6 oz.) pkg. strawberry jello
2 (10 oz.) pkgs. frozen strawberries
Mix pretzels, 4 Tbl. sugar, and butter in a 9x13 pan and bake at 400 degrees for 6 minutes. Cool. Mix cream cheese, 1 c. sugar and Cool Whip together and spread on top of crust. Refrigerate. Dissolve jello in 2 c. boiling water. Add strawberries and chill until almost congealed. Spread on top of cream cheese mixture. Continue to chill until set.
